with the Republic Yt is the product of the hearts and intellects that gave the World the Declaration of Independ ence and the American Constitution Under Its fostering care the infant Re public of a century and a quarter ago has grown to be the greatest and mightest nation of earth The party is the embodiment of an idea a principle to the truth of which the Amer ican Republic stands in testimony The founders of the Republic built upon the great principles of the equality of all men before the law There fore the government they founded rested upon the consent of the govern ed The people were declared to be the reservoir of all power and the gov eminent of only such powers as were delegated to it by the people and written in the Constitution Extreme prudence and precaution was taken that no power should be delegated to the government inimical to the great fundamental idea of equality underly ing the whole fabric That the fathI ers performed their work well Js evi denced in a number of decisions of the Supreme Court in after years in which the Court held the Declaration of In dependence to be the spirit of the Con stitution The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States are the foundation stones on which the Democratic party has ever stood and still stands The decisions of a long line of Democratic judges upholding the Constitution both in letter and In spirit stand as the bul wark of our liberties Democratic judges and legislators have been known throughout our history as strict constructionists deviating not from the letterer the spirit of the great govern ment charter Under Democratic rule ours has been a government of law Under the guidance of Demo cratic statesman and jurists the sover eign will as expressed in the Constitution was clothed with dignity and commanded respect Thus what was first an experiment in government be came an established principle and the great riddle of human liberty was solv edAgainst the Democratic party from the beginning have been arrayed those who believed that some were born to rule and others to serve the mnions of special privilege and those who seek to use the governmentas an engine to plunder their fellows The epoch in our history when the questions of chattel slavery convulsed the nation may be passed by admitting the inability of either of the preexisting parties to meet the demands of the hour And in so doing attention is called to the feet that Lincoln and his coworkers invoked the Declaration of Independence and the fundamental principles of our great Democracy unI til the conscience of the nation was so quickened that slavery the one foul blot on Columbias fair face was re moved by her own hands In the first great upheavel in Amer ican politics Democracys herditary opponent went to its grave When Martin Van Buren a former Demo cratic President in 1848 became thei candidate of the Free Soil Party and drew off enough Democratic votes toI defeat General Cass the Whigg party which was the party of political com mercialists and time servers was soon ground to powder between the upper and nether mill stones of Democracy and the party that espoused the cause of the African slave The Republican party was the party ofa single idea which it carried out faithfully and well But this being done it rapidly degenerated morally having no traditions or fixed principles to restrain it From the close of the war the history of the Republican party is the history of jobs bartering the government credit franchises and whine empires of the public domain to corporations in exchange for political support and campaign contributions It became the tool and agent of the creditor combination bankers and national and international pawn brokers who found a hearty welcome in the committee rooms and hotels of Repub Bean legislators at the National Capi tal a successful war to Its credit in Which the Union was pre served and slavery abolished the mil lions who participated in the sangui nary conflict continued their allegiance to the party and Insured its supremacy until time should dull the memory and mellow the pasSions of war furnishedhmore Northern

to them all of their constitu tional rights as soon as the war was over The crime of carpetbag gov ernments and Southern outrages lay at the door of Republican politicians who sought not only their

Philippine War McKInleys reelection docs not seem to hurry up the close of hostilities in the Philippines The American army is kept busy everywhere fighting off the constantly attacking insurgents In fact Aguinaldo and his followers are more aggressive now than a year ago The situation there is better explained by General MacArthur the Commander of the Department in his report of the War Department In speaking of the establishment of a republican form of government in the Islands he writes as followsInthe light of existing conditions it is dllll cult to realize that there is any possibility of such a future for the islands especially so as atpresent and for many years to come the necessity of a large American military and naval force is too apparent to admit of discussion This report coming as it does from one who knows what he is writing about emphasizes the fact that the hundreds of millions already spent in sustaining an army of 00000 men and a naval squadron together with the hundreds of millions to be spent in the future will prove a heavy burden for the American government to carry The revenue from the Philippines or looked at in any business light the ad vantage in a financial way will be infi nitely small in comparison with the tremendous expense qf a never ending war The Republican party will doubtless weary of the load before many years speed

candidate for Governor stoppedJ at a hotel a stranger not landlady but to nearly everybody else in town He was a plain hut substan tial looking man and registered ah plain Joseph IL Lewis Ills plain appearance was calculated to make the mistake more probable Nearly all candidates for office try to look as much like farmers as they can for what reason they do not want the farmers to know and Judge Lewis with the friendly asssistauce of nature did not miss the mark very far Early next morning a grocer called at the hotel and said he had au en gagement to west stranger there who had some stock peas to sell The ac commodating landlady scanned over her list of guests and picked on Judge Lewis as the uric whose appearance most likely Indicated peas for sale and sent a porter to his room to tell him a gentleman wanted to see him in the ollice Judge Lewis dreaming of only political business hastily geared up not taking time to tie all his hame strings and adjust his backing straps The landlady politely introduced plain unassuming Mr Lewis to the grocer and desiring to facilitate matters between her guest and prospective cus tomer added that the grocer wanted to see him about some stock peas Plain Mr Lewis was so chagrined he threw oil the mask and looked fur a few moments as if he greatly desired to repeat the battle of Perryville in which he was an active commander Rich Rod
